This refined but laid-back tapas bar is the perfect spot for a low-key group dinner fueled by traditional tapas like tortilla española, boquerones, and croquetas—though we strongly suggest you save room for the paella del dia. The giant entree is made to order so it takes some extra time, but it’s worth the 25- to 45-minute wait as it arrives at the table with a perfectly crispy-crusty socarrat of caramelized rice at the bottom of the pan. If you’re not sure what to order, let the chef take the wheel and order the raciones, a surprise assortment of tapas, cheese, and cured meats for $85.
